ARTIST INTERVIEW: SAMBOX
1. Hey Sambox , super nice to have the chance to chat with you again! First and foremost what got you into music?
Hello, thank you for this interview !
I come from a musical family.
It was after my classical music training that I discovered different musical styles, and especially towards the end of the 80s and all through the 90s that I discovered all these electronic sounds.
It was very exciting, and that's when I got the trigger to discover all these new sounds through the radios and club to take a closer interest.
2. What brings you nostalgic feelings?
I have a very nostalgic side to me, I like to remember beautiful periods that I sometimes miss, like the carefree days of a child.
It's through my music that I like to convey all that nostalgia and emotion.
3. What is the first thing you think of when you wake up?
4. What do you dislike about avant - garde music?
I find it hard to get into music that's too experimental.
For me, a good melody is the basis of a good piece, whatever the musical style.
I compare avant-garde music with abstract painting, which doesn't speak to me, but I understand that there's an audience out there who likes it.
As they say, there's no accounting for taste.
5. What electronic piece are you focusing on right now?
On October 16, I'm releasing a new single in collaboration with Anita Babereau, a remarkable French cellist with whom I've already worked on the single "Hanami" and "Insouciance", which I invite you to listen to on Spotify ...
The style will be more world music, very ambient music, and more for fans of relaxing Buddha Bar-style sounds.
I also have another project with Anita, a little more electro lounge, which will see the light of day in early 2024, and still a lot of tracks on the back burner that I'm fine-tuning.
6. Do you like French house as a genre?
I really liked Bob Sinclar's early period, especially his Champs Elysées album. For me, there was a real authenticity to the sound, which I miss with today's house music.
These days, I don't really think there's any house music left (at least in France), and urban music has replaced all that, much to my regret.
7. Do you have any album from 2023 inyour rotation? If yes, which one?
Sincerely no, I don't take the time to discover new electronic albums anymore.
8. Do you listen to a lot of leftfield music?
9. What’s your favorite film?
To keep things nostalgic, "Back To The Future" !
10. Do agree with the Pigeon?
what else ...
The opening hands are necessary for "Deep Time" to gain momentum and tension. I really admire the fact that this avant-garde single builds on itself, becoming more and more complex! The beats are as minimalist as they come, but that's not why they're not extremely infectious or effective. These waves send shivers down my spine, especially when combined with a dark vocal force from the depths of eternity. "Deep Time" seems to be a time puzzle, since it's so hypnotic that the pigeon here has no idea how many minutes of music have passed: was it 1 minute? Maybe 10... who knows? These synthetic melodies fit perfectly into deep house and seem to me the ideal choice for a psychedelic, relaxing party with lots of hip movements and good vibes!
The Pigeon added a single from her to his Dancing Gems playlist on Spotify. You can check out the released music below. If you like what you hear, make sure to follow along so you can stay on top of future releases!
